I don't think that will work until I update the Build System. Making this
work (if you use <include>$(BOOST_ROOT) in your subproject) depends on
fixing the "relative include" problem we've been discussing. Aww, heck, it's
been lingering so long and it's an easy hack; I'll try to fix that this

Note that this technique doesn't affect anything unless you're trying to
build from the top level.

That's what I'd expect, under the current situation.

I'm really surprised to hear that. You can invoke a build from the top level
($(BOOST_ROOT)) and it works??
